The conservative approach to criminal justice:
fighting crime, supporting victims, and protecting taxpayers.

Texas Youth Commission Closes Three Facilities

| June 10, 2011

The Texas Youth Commission (TYC) announced last week that it will commence a large closing of correctional facilities which will require the relocation of about 400 offenders.  Specifically the Al Price Juvenile Correctional Facility in Beaumont, Unit II of the Ron Jackson State Juvenile Correctional Complex in Brownwood, and the Crockett State School will be shut down, while the Mart facility will be consolidated into a single-unit facility as reported by several Texas news outlets and the TYC. These closures come after the recent TYC reform bill, which Right On Crime discussed here.


RIGHT ON CRIME is a national campaign to promote successful, conservative solutions on American criminal justice policy—reforming the system to ensure public safety, shrink government, and save taxpayers money. By sharing research and policy ideas and mobilizing strong conservative voices, we work to raise awareness of the growing support for effective reforms within the conservative movement. We are transforming the debate on criminal justice in America.
